Jersey Shore's Sammi "Sweetheart" Giancola, 25, is putting an emphasis on the G in GTL, as she's been working out three times a week to get her body in its best shape ever — and she says she's better off for it.
"I think if you look good, you feel good," Sammi, whose body is more fit and toned now than it was during the first season of the shore house, tells OK!. "So if you're working out, I think pain is gain. If you go through the pain, you gain happiness."
Here's her path (which includes some help from NV weight-loss supplements) to feeling her best self.
How are you staying in shape?
Because the weather's really nice, I try to run outside as much as I can. I take my dog for walks all the time. I go to the gym, play indoor soccer [which she played growing up] with friends every week. I try and keep busy and lift some weights and do cardio as much as I can.
At the gym, what's your routine?
I try to do cardio every day, but I'll alternate doing legs one day, arms one day, doing my abs. I try and switch it up as much as I can.
Is there one body part you've noticed that has changed the most since you started exercising more?
I think that my legs are really solid, and now I'm working my arms because my arm muscles are weak. That's something I've been seeing improvement on.
Now that it's almost summer, are you going to be stepping it up?
Now that the weather's getting nicer, I'm trying to eat the right foods and diet and exercise, so I lose weight quicker and look good in a bathing suit.
